Maiduguri – The Nigeria
Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Borno Command, said it had
arrested two men for allegedly peddling cocaine in the Internally
Displaced Persons’ camp in Dikwa.

The Commander of the Borno Command, Mr Ona Ogilegwu, said in Maiduguri
on Sunday that one the suspects, a 48-year-old man, was arrested on Feb.
27 in the camp.

He said that other illicit substances, including cannabis sativa,
rophenol, and diazepam, were found on the drug peddler.

He said: “The criminal disguised himself as an officer of NDLEA in the
IDPs camp in order to sell the illicit drugs.

“After surveillance by men of the command, we decided to buy the hard
drugs from him to confirm that he was selling the drugs.

“We apprehended him as he taught we were coming to buy in large
quantity.’’

Ogilegwu said that the command also arrested a 32-year-old man, who was
similarly in possession of other hard drugs in the same IDPs camp.

“I dont know what is wrong with these people, but I will tell you that
the level of drug intake among men and women in IDPs camps is beyond
imagination.

“We have received several reports and we have sent our men to the 28
camps in the state to mop up all nefarious activities there,’’ said
Ogilegwu.
